Do your kids hate going to the hospital? To be honest, I freak out in hospitals too. When my kids are sick: I tend to become a bit crazy, send our doctor tons of messages on our WhatsApp group and request for house visits. As much as possible, I avoid bringing my kids to the hospital ESPECIALLY when they’re sick since their immune system is low. Imagine how many sick people are in the Emergency Room, all the germs and viruses lurking in the air. It’s literally a breeding ground for an infection!!!

My little boy Asher has been sick for almost a week with fever, cough and really bad asthma attacks. Today, our doctor ordered for a blood test and a chest x-ray to hopefully rule out pneumonia. So instead of taking him to the hospital, we decided to take him to the Advanced Lab Solutions by Hi-Precisons Diagnostics in Centuria Medical in Makati.

Centuria Medical is the Philippines’ first Medical Mall. It’s new, clean, and less toxic than going to Makati Medical Center & St. Lukes. No lines, very little waiting time and hassle free. And most importantly, less germs! It’s perfect for the elderly, pregnant women and kids.

They have Fully Automated Lab Tests, ECG, X-Rays, Drug Testing, 2D-Echo and Tredmill Stress Test, Ultrasound, Executive Health Check Up packages AND you can get your results online. FAST!

Here we are getting the chest X-Ray that our pedia Dr. Aye Nuguid requested.

The blood extraction was quick and painless too. Asher didn’t even flinch or cry!

And by the time we were done with the blood test, the X-ray film was ready too. We were in and out of there in less than an hour. The blood test results were emailed within a few hours too.

Advanced Lab Solutions by Hi-Precision Diagnostics is located at 9/F Centuria Medical Makati Century City Kalayaan Ave. cor Salamanca St. Brgy. Poblacion, Makati City.

You can contact them at +632.793.8623 / +63925.832.0493 | Monday to Saturday 7:30am-4:30pm

I forgot to take a photos but, there’s a Mercury Drug Store that just opened at the ground floor too. Very convenient!

I also took the liberty to gather more information about the other services that are available in Centuria Medical:

Luckily, Asher doesn’t have Pneumonia. He just has a very mild bacterial infection which doesn’t require antibiotics. Thank God!! In the meantime, were just going to have to ride it out, get a lot of rest and load up on the fluids. If you can, please do say a little prayer for Asher’s speedy recovery.

Til my next post… stay healthy. Health is wealth!
